Remember Woodstock? Yeah, me neither but we’re in luck…..we can relive it! Apparently Woodstock’s 40th birthday is this weekend and in celebration, the anti-fashions of the day are back in style. So pull out your faded, patched bell-bottoms, pair ???em with anything fringed and some love beads, and head out the door to celebrate in style.
A tie-dyed T-shirt, flared jeans, a jersey maxidress: Closets are filled with such whiffs of hippie, whether vintage or brand new. Either way, the fashion mood they represent hit the mainstream consciousness during those three dirty, sunny, music-soaked days in Bethel, N.Y., from Aug. 15 to 17, 1969, a reminder of the let-loose, come-as-you-are ethos of the era. Woodstock, in its tribal vibe and aesthetic, was the antifashion fashion event ??” no labels, clothing-optional, and a whole lot of style.
In fact, the unfolding of the hippie-chic look, so often attributed to Woodstock, the 40th anniversary of which is this coming weekend, dates more accurately to the Summer of Love and 1967 San Francisco, where Levi??™s and peasant blouses spilled out of Haight Street storefronts and onto Dolores Park frolickers.
